PaperTreyInk is celebrating their 2nd Anniversary and Nicole has been posting some fun daily events and challenges on her blog. Today it was a color challenge.
Honestly, I have not been able to invest in all of their great products due to being low on Fun Funds (still paying off Christmas and such) but I'm VERY excited about their new sample pack of papers which will be available on Feb 15th. Sometimes I don't need a lot of one color of cardstock but their sample pack will give me a couple of each so I can try them out and see if I like them. Undoubtably I will, their cardstock is da'bomb!!
Hmmm...my short post is turning into a long post.
My point in bringing that up is, Nicole was kind enough to let those that might not have their exact papers in their scrapstash to be able to use similar colored papers to create something. Yay! I'm not disqualified!! I get to play along.
Here's what I came up with: An altered mini comp book
Love it!! Created the monogram using shrink plastic and inked it with Olive ink which became permanent once I heat set it.
- Cricut, Design Studio and Cartridges: Plantin Schoolbook
- Paper and Cardstock: DCWV
- Shrink plastic: Clear (Graphix)
- Ribbon: Offray
- Ink: Olive (Colorbox)
- Flowers: Essentials 4 Urban (Prima)
- Other: comp book, wire for jump rings, yellow brad
Hope you all had a great day!
